Six years ago Alan changed his life. Thank God!!!
His dad thought it was a good idea for him to train with the boys of 1822fitness, since he trained there.
God definitely put us in the best place!!!
I was skeptical but something definitely had to be done.
My son Alan was overweight difficult to manage, added to the sedentary lifestyle and isolation due to his condition "of the autism spectrum" it was not easy to manage, go out, share with others, but ... it was drop by drop and constant work with the help of the time and patience of his coaches: THANK YOU ALL!
He is currently training with Gabriel who has been his coach in recent years and who acquired the knowledge and skills to do a better job every day with Alan. My son was his inspiration and he was his. THANK YOU INFINITE!!!
Today after more than six years Alan not only stays in better shape but also learned to make friends, to socialize, to have waiting times, to overcome difficulties such as balance, strength, concentration to name a few and that he thought he could never achieve, he was often frustrated, but today they are a piece of cake for him.
1822firness was a window that opened not only for him in his life, but also a giant door to show him and all of us who love him that, with love, perseverance and a lot of technique we can achieve it, maintain an adequate weight, the integration, empathy and support we seek for our wonderful children, during this journey that we have to go through
Thank you for making possible some of the improvements and change that my son Alan needed. I always tell those who ask me the meaning of this place for me, and I can only say "it was one of the most therapeutic things Alan has achieved in this country." Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
God bless you, such a beautiful work!
